Monica Cooper
 Title Farm Advisor–Viticulture
 Location Napa
 Time with ANR 4 years
 Typical Day There is no typical day—variety is the greatest part of the job. My responsibilities range from organizing seminars and meetings, giving seminars at meetings organized by others, reading scientific literature, working with grape growers in the field and in focus groups, designing research projects, collecting data, writing grant proposals and manuscripts, guest-lecturing in University classes, mentoring students and employees, to providing technical expertise to local, statewide, and national programs; there is never a dull moment.

 What I love Most About Working for ANR I love having the opportunity to work directly with growers and to see the impacts of UCCE research and educational programs. Also, the opportunity to always continue learning and growing as we face new challenges.

Here's to another 100 years of science and service!
